In nonstandard analysis was used to construct a (standard) global attractor for the 3D stochastic Navier–Stokes equations with general multiplicative noise, living on a Loeb space, using Sell's approach. The attractor had somewhat ad hoc attracting and compactness properties. We strengthen this result by showing that the attractor has stronger properties making it a neo-attractor — a notion introduced here that arises naturally from the Keisler–Fajardo theory of neometric spaces. To set this result in context we first survey the use of Loeb space and nonstandard techniques in the study of attractors, with special emphasis on results obtained for the Navier–Stokes equations both deterministic and stochastic, showing that such methods are well-suited to this enterprise.
